Pro-democracy tabloid blames Beijing for cyberattack
(06-19 16:54)

A leading Hong Kong pro-democracy tabloid blamed Beijing for a massive cyber attack on its website, just days after a series of similar attacks on an online referendum on electoral reform.
The website of Apple Daily, known for its critical stance on Beijing, suffered a blackout for several hours on Wednesday after what it described as a large-scale attack launched by sophisticated hackers.
In a front page article headlined ''We will never backtrack,'' the Apple Daily accused Beijing of orchestrating the cyber attack.
''Apple Daily is attacked every day but this time the scale was unprecedented,'' said Cheung Ka-sing, chief executive of Next Media that owns Apple Daily.--AFP
